    What did I miss?
    David Horowitz said on Lou Dobbs Tonight….
    “When Paul Ryan threw Trump under the bus during the campaign, it was the Freedom Caucus that came to Trump’s rescue.”
    When was that? I’m sorry, I must have forgotten when the I Love Ted Cruz and therefore I can’t stand Donald Trump so-called Freedom Caucus lifted a finger then or now to help “Trump”!
    Please remind me.

      That has been the day’s talking point by several FC supporters/members. A great deal of the HFC members are NeverTrumpers and have spoken harshly in public about Trump. Not surprised, though, that Dobbs is going after Ryan again. He is obsessed with Ryan, and it is getting to the point that it is not enjoyable watching his show as much anymore.

        Honestly don’t understand the sudden defense of Ryan and his merry band of bandits here at CTH. What the heck did I miss? Was he born again or something?

          What part of supporting your president don’t you understand? It has nothing to do with defending Ryan. It is about supporting the president, the ONLY person on earth who could have won the last election for Republicans. The disloyalty to him is gross.

        • I am pro Ryan, I can’t ignore his history of conservative advocacy.
          Trump has yet to prove that his political philosophy is superior.
          I have questions about some of his positions but not his leadership skills.
          I do not expect the conservatives to bow at Trumps feet, just yet.
          Trumps negotiating skills are superior, he has superior courage, character and charisma but he may wind up falling back to the conservative philosophy.
          So Let’s not throw the Trump skeptics off the boat just yet.

            Ryan is incompetent. He is in the House because he lacks the political skill and charisma to win a statewide race, he couldn’t even tip the scale for Romney in Wisconsin. He simply doesn’t have what it takes to actually win, he is nothing but a wonk that the establishment find useful to use as a puppet.

            I’m in Wisconsin, and I’m ashamed his district keeps re-electing him. But he does bring home the bacon.

        If he’s going after Ryan he needs to go after Pence. Trump put his VP in charge of making sure Trump’s MAGA agenda was set up to pass through the House and Senate.

      Ted Cruz made some phone calls for the campaign so they could have an awkward photo op. Is that what he’s talking about? Trump didn’t need anyone to come to “his rescue,” he knows how to win unlike the HFC.

    I have to complain [again] about conservatives/Republicans on TV: Every one of them who gets into an argument on Muh Russia! invariably concedes that “Russia obviously tried to influence our election”. Do they really — REALLY? — believe that there is ANY credible evidence that Russia did anything? The laughable U.S. “Intelligence” Community couldn’t even examine the DNC server(s) themselves to see evidence of hacking. Instead, the DNC refused access and made them accept (???) the analysis of their own “cybersecurity” specialist CrowdStrike, which has an anti-Russian bias among their owners/management. Moreover, the CrowdStrike analysis has been seriously undercut by revelations of improper attribution of hacking by Russians in multiple cases, and an admission that their conclusion on the DNC server was the result of “deduction” and the “process of elimination”. Some scientific basis, huh? Our government has provided no visible evidence to the public that any hacking of the DNC or Podesta was done. They don’t ever say how it was done.

    Yet TV conservative representatives — tonight it was Jesse Watters on Fox — continue to lay down to the Leftist smear that OUR ELECTIONS WERE ALTERED BY THE RUSSIANS. It is preposterous that our supposed “people” do not have to backbone to stand up and fight back on a major hoax issue being perpetrated on our President and our Country. Just like the Michelle Fields hoax.

        • Mexico tried to influence our elections. Obama even told the illegals to go vote.

          Saudi Arabia influenced our elections, giving Hillary over 20% of her campaign funds.

          So when they say “Russia influenced the elections..,” in their minds, they aren’t necessarily LYING … and one could say that virtually ANY country influenced our elections.

          At this point, I’d say that Indonesia influenced our elections…with the Awan brothers providing a continual conduit and endless stream of highly sensitive information.

          Ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she has finally fired the Awan brothers and taken their log-in privileges. Hell, at this point, any number of elected officials could be complicit in “accidentally sharing” their access to our intel with whoever pays them off.

          It’s all about INTENT, right?

    I saved the last line for last even though it happened first. I mean, come on, MSNBC is the standard by which you judge events? Also they used to say that every day during the election. I’ve lost track of all the time Trump wasn’t supposed to “last” a certain period.

    Found an interesting article at Breitbart. They, too, point to Walsh as the leaker and note 4 candidates to take her place. The best, imo, is Dearborn. Fmr Sessions guy, pro-Trump. His job would then be filled by pro-Trump David Urban of PA, who was key in helping to take that State. The others are a combo of Reince and Pence people and one, who worked for the RNC is another known leaker as confirmed by two sources.

    Breitbart has jumped the shark. Featuring a story all over its headline of an interview with Mark Cuban of all people! What is going on?

    http://www.breitbart.com/radio/2017/03/31/mark-cuban-breitbart-news-daily-i-learn-people-disagree-me/

    I just read earlier from Lame Cherry about how Breitbart is funded by Robert Mercer, who is connected to Bannon. They were for Cruz then switched to Trump when he was winning, and got Bannon from Breitbart to be his campaign manager. I don’t even typically read Lame Cherry but someone mentioned it on here. Frankly, Lame Cherry is just too much for me, everyone near Pres. Trump is his enemy, maybe it’s true and I just can’t get that depressed right now.

That’s how they featured Cuban’s interview, as if any of us would want to know about Mark Cuban’s exclusive. This is a betrayal the more I think about it.

        That’s good to hear, really.

        I was mentioning it because I had just read about the Breitbart/Mercer connection today and then subsequently getting Bannon in with Trump. Yes, there is a lot of conspiracy there, Pence is much loathed for one, I remember reading a while back. I honestly don’t know if there is any truth to any of it. It’s depressing because it seems Pres. Trump is more alone according the Lame Cherry.
